Griffin returns from Cal

Marcus Griffin was back on the road at Cal this past weekend and even though it was a short trip, the Washington State commit saw a lot to like.
The three-star defensive tackle from Bellevue, Wash., said the coaches did not leave him alone - but he appreciated it since they made it clear they want him to join the recruiting class.
"It was a good trip," Griffin said. "I got to see what they had to offer and I got to see a good matchup between Ohio State and Cal.
"My position coach wouldn't leave me alone the whole time. It's not a bad thing. I definitely felt the love from coach (Barry) Sacks and coach (Andy) Buh and coach (Sonny) Dykes."
The 6-foot-3, 285-pound prospect who's been committed to Washington State since late April said the Cal trip was definitely a positive experience but he didn't have a tremendous amount of time there to check things out.
That means the Golden Bears will definitely stay involved in his recruitment but Griffin is not anywhere near prepared to switch his commitment at this point.
"I didn't see as much as I would have liked to just because I didn't have a big timeframe so we had to fit in a couple things and X out some other things," Griffin said. "I don't really know enough at this point to even make that decision."
The Bellevue standout has now taken visits to Cal and Washington this fall and he's hoping to take a trip to Washington State this weekend. He wants to revisit where he's committed to see exactly where he stands with the Cougars.
"I'm going to try to get out to the Wazzu game hopefully this weekend," Griffin said. "I want to go see them and after that I don't really have a set plan in mind. I'm trying to see them play Idaho for homecoming.
"It's definitely huge. I need to go back up there and see if I have the same feeling I had when I went there in April and made my decision. I want to see if that's the right spot and I'll be happy with it."
The three-star prospect said he hasn't received any new offers but new interest is coming in from USC, UCLA and Oregon.
